CJA Extends JO Recidivism Research

Posted on Sep 16, 2016

CJA’s ongoing research on recidivism among Juvenile Offenders in New York City has been presented in a series of four reports published between 2005 and 2015.  A fifth study, released today, examines re-arrests after the disposition of the original JO case among a cohort of juveniles arraigned between 2007 and 2014.  All of the JO recidivism research, including the current study, points to extremely high re-arrest rates among this group of 13- to 15-year-old offenders whose cases begin in the adult court.  The report concludes with a discussion of implications for criminal justice policy.  A full report and a Research Brief summarizing the highlights of the latest research are now available.
